Water, What You Need To Know

When we think of a healthy lifestyle two key factors often come to mind: good nutrition and exercise! There is no debate that these are crucial components in overall health and well-being. But if it’s so easy, how come so many of us still feel sick, have low energy, and are overweight?

Unfortunately there is no “one” answer. Healthy eating is often viewed as a confusing and scary concept for a lot of people. In today’s world of pesticides, over-processing and tricky marketing, even the people with the best of intentions have a tough time making healthy choices. The good news is, every small change helps. Education is power and the more we learn, the more we can do to become the healthiest version of ourselves.

But what if I told you there is a key element of nutrition that is often overlooked? It’s extremely easy to implement, accessible almost everywhere, and best of allcompletely free!



One of the easiest changes to adapt into a healthy lifestyle is to ensure we are adequately hydrated.
For many people, the simple act of drinking enough water is not viewed as enough of a priority.

But what makes water so important? Let us count the ways!

You ARE water!

Our blood is made up of mostly, you guessed it, water! Your brain is nearly 90% water, and every single cell of your body is made up of water! It’s no wonder we need the stuff to function properly!

It keeps you quick!

Since your brain is mostly water, keeping it hydrated helps improve concentration and alertness, improving energy and reducing fatigue.

Don’t forget to flush!

Water helps flush out wastes and toxins through urination (and sweat) which helps the immune system stay strong and ward off illness!

It helps you poop!

Water aids in the digestive process as well as keeps stools lubricated and easy to pass! Come on, everybody loves a good poop!

It helps keep you beautiful

Water keeps the skin hydrated keeping it soft and smooth and wards off unwanted blemishes and wrinkles – you don’t want to dry up and turn into a prune!

This is just a short lists of the benefits of adequate water consumption. The benefits of water are truly endless.

Of course, nobody wants to keep a running tally on how many cups they drink in a day (who has time for that?) I find the easiest way to keep track is to purchase a 1L water bottle and aim to finish it at least once to start, gradually working your way up to one or two refills per day.

Plain old water too boring? Spice it up with a squeeze of lemon, some fresh mint, cucumber slices or fresh berries!

Drink up my friends!

And to that, I say, stay hydrated!
